Risk impact

MagicScroll Web Reader requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install MagicScroll Web Reader if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

MagicScroll Web Reader has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

In addition to the app, I also used the website a lot (, but it hasn’t been available lately. Why? Thank you

al meglio non c'è mai fine. Dopo aver scoperto il sito Readability e potuto vederlo in Mercury la sua fine. Ho continuato a migliorarmi con altre estensioni tipo Mercury, estensioni ottime come Reader View. Eppure questa applicazione mi piace molto perché contiene delle novità mai scoperte prima.

Wish there were more choices in web readers. I used it to read my daily scripture via email. It would only read half of it.
